Sociology

Nandi Crosby

Professor

A proud Baltimore native, I joined the faculty of Chico State in the fall of 1999. I earned a B.A. in psychology from St. Mary’s College in southern Maryland; an M.A. in Africana Women’s Studies from Clark Atlanta University; and a Ph.D. in sociology from Georgia State University. I hold a joint appointment in Sociology and Multicultural & Gender Studies, with specific interests in all things related to social inequality: poverty, gang violence, police brutality, feminist theory, systematic racism and sexism, gender politics, transgender visibility, and a host of other social justice issues. I’ve taught more than 20 classes at Chico State in areas ranging from multicultural studies, African American studies, feminist theory, gangs, gender, sexuality, and criminology. Recently, I earned the University’s prestigious “Outstanding Teacher” award for the 2015-2016 academic year and I began serving as Chair of the sociology department in summer of 2016.
